Take a Stitch Tuesday 29

Hooray! got the early jump on the lovely Basque Stitch for this week, and am so excited I actually stitched…a peacock!  I am progressing :)  This stitch seemed hard, but after practicing, I really liked working it.  This is part of  Take a stitch Tuesday; you can find all the details, and even how to do the stitches, here at Sharon’s’ pintangle

Unique ~ the designer’s hands

Faux Lapis Lazuli Trapezium Pendant by Laura Torster, LauraBijoux

Unique…made unique by the designer, Laura Torster of Laura Bijoux

This beautiful, unique piece is created by cutting and chopping shades of blue and transparent polymer clay, with small flecks of gold leaf.

Then, hand shaped, and on top of that, lots and lots of sanding and sanding to achieve the smoothness and shape, then polishing, and then varnishing…then carefully measured and pierced, so that the gentle silver bail fits exactly right…..

hands…in different hands, the same clay and materials, would not produce this. No amount of extra work, or care or time…could make this. Laura’s hands did and do. Gifted hands.
just….right.

Whose hands are you in?

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them and they follow me:
And I give to them eternal life: and they shall never perish, neither shall anyone snatch them out of my hand
My Father, which gave them to me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand.
I and my Father are one.
john chapter 10, verses 27-30
